When Relay uses the term “high value equipment” for the type of customer assets we specialise in transporting, the value is not just related to the equipment’s cost. Equally and often more important, is how much value any given item will offer to the end user receiving the delivery.
The equipment we deal with on a daily basis is sophisticated, vulnerable to damage and requires exceptional care in handling at all stages of any collection, storage, delivery and installation process.
It is also more than likely to be vital to the operation of a business, the functioning of a laboratory, as a support for schoolteachers or one of the many other types of workplace we regularly visit. There is never any margin for error.
But how should high value equipment be transported?
With items of high value and high importance, such as technological assets, medical apparatus, and AV equipment, the need for rigorous planning and the correct deployment of personnel is coupled with the demands for accurate scheduling and working within agreed budgets.
It is always important that any complex logistical task is carried out by professional transportation specialists who have the knowledge, experience and equipment to be able to guarantee a successful outcome.
This is particularly vital when dealing with high value assets that are vulnerable to damage. Professional transportation companies will be able to use high-tech packaging solutions and vehicles specially designed to create a “safety blanket” around fragile equipment in transit.
